We call them Vauxhalls or GM over here - the model specs are also similar. What Opel have you got? I've had a Corsa and an Astra (Kadette) both were good cars and served me well.

my car is an old opel kadette -90. it has a sport exhaust so it makes quite a nice sound.... the engine is 1.6. is there any cheap way to tune the car to increase the performance?

A fast road cam would be good on this engine. Fitting a low ratio gearbox would improve your acceleration. Fuel pressure boost valve would also improve throttle response. How mjuch do you want to spend though - this is usually the limit.

I was looking at panel filters for it and found one which would have fitted. this only costs around 80€. I read in other discussions that it increased the performance quite a lot in some cars and less in others...

A panel filter is a good cheap option. It will increase the power from about 3000 revs upwards and you shouldn't lose any low down power in your car.
